Reason: The i386 platform is obsoleted, and there will be
less and less targets to install on. Furthermore, I though
it would be good to use AMD64 because if the CPU. I know
the ridiculous amount of 2 GB RAM is rather small. :-)

With the present and upcoming problems, I currently really
consider reinstalling the whole system. It's not _that_
problematic as it is sufficiently fast. It's also a nice
learning experience. You _can't_ imagine the amount of
things that stopped working. :-)
